The Ohio State chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation will be hosting their 17th Annual Women in the Outdoors event on September 9 – 11, 2016 at Camp Muskingum in Carrollton, OH. This Women’s Day Out event was nationally recognized by the NWTF as the Best 2015 Event for 75 to 150 participants.
The Women in the Outdoors program is designed to offer women ages 14 and over the opportunity to gain valuable in-the-field skills in an environment that encourages fun and success in the outdoors. The exciting program targets women who want to learn outdoor skills through inexpensive courses addressing such topics as camping, fishing, botany, hiking, bird watching, archery, shooting sports and much more! It will also allow women to develop a greater understanding of wildlife conservation and meet others who share their enthusiasm. This program will provide the foundation to train women as outdoor educators and develop a network of outdoor enthusiasts with similar interests.
Course selections at this event include an eclectic lineup — with Basic Archery, Basic Fishing, Basic Handgun, Basic Shotgun, Basic Rifle, Conceal Carry Instruction, Fly & Jig making, Self-Defense, Yoga and Zipline/High Ropes, to name a few options.

The cost of attending each event includes a membership in Women in the Outdoors program and a subscription to Turkey Country magazine, the Federation’s full-color, quarterly publication with articles and information on a variety of outdoor adventures and activities.
